db Waterman Profile picture There is a fusion of creativity and imagination in art that allows us to cross boundaries and immerse ourselves in captivating visual narratives. Among these artistic endeavors, mixed media and collage paintings have emerged as a vibrant and dynamic medium, offering a kaleidoscope of textures, colors and elements. Within this realm, a remarkable work comes to life - an enchanting composition of a girl in a purple shirt, gracefully swaying amidst a beautiful field of flowers. Through a harmonious blend of media and a delicate interplay of elements, this artwork captures the essence of youthful joy, the beauty of nature and the boundless possibilities of the human spirit.

The swing:
The heart of this mixed media masterpiece is a swing, elegantly suspended from an invisible branch. The swing evokes a tactile sense of familiarity and warmth. Hints of weathered paint shine through it, referring to the countless hours of playful adventures it has experienced.

The girl in the purple shirt:
The centerpiece of this collage is the girl, with her purple shirt as a shining beacon amid the natural hues of the surrounding landscape. Carefully placed magazine fragments, varying in size, shape and color, are arranged to create a deep layering. She sways high and exudes a sense of freedom and unlimited possibilities.

The Field of Flowers:
A symphony of vibrant petals and delicate flowers covers the ground beneath the swing, creating an enchanting tapestry of colors. The artist's meticulous handiwork creates the flowers from a variety of materials. Collage paper and fragments of painted petals blend seamlessly, demonstrating the incredible versatility of mixed media. The viewer can almost feel the softness of the petals underfoot and inhale the intoxicating scent that permeates the air.

Story and emotion:
In this enchanting mixed media collage painting, the artist masterfully combines various media to weave a captivating story of joy, nature and the indomitable human spirit. Through the exuberant presence of the girl on the swing, the vibrant field of flowers and the interplay of textures, the artwork transcends the boundaries of a canvas and invites viewers to immerse themselves in a world where beauty and imagination are intertwined.

I remembered that as a young girl I so much liked to cut images from magazines to paste them into school agendas, scrapbooks and even on my bedroom door. Add to this the fascination I always had for walls filled with old posters, flaking paint, scrappy billboards and weathered paint, it opened an unexpected door for completely new opportunities. Completely unintended I found a new way of working, I felt pleasurably and comfortably at home in. What started out as copying old walls with worn out posters has grown into many series of new visual storytelling. Not simply just eclecticism, but bringing together many seemingly incoherent story lines into one completely new story, my own personal story. Initially it lacked the one thing that is important to me, the transparency that normally only is possible with the use of watercolor. The unforgiving layering of transparent watercolors is a challenge I would not want to miss and after a lot of trial and error I finally succeeded in getting the collages as transparent as a watercolor. Every layer of paper, oil, acrylic, pencil, crayon, ballpoint, watercolor, ink, charcoal and whatever else I use, remains visible in the artwork. You can imagine it made me feel the queen of the ball !
